Electric Vehicle Cargo Capacity

An overlooked benefit with electric vehicles is that most have additional cargo space in the front of the vehicle, where the engine would normally be in gas powered vehicles.

Also, many electric vehicles utilize additional space underneath to provide deeper rear trunks allowing for additional storage for luggage and other larger items like a big screen tv. If cargo space is important to you, the Tesla Model X is currently your best option with 88 cubic feet of cargo space.

We look at cargo capacity and capacity with the rear seats folded down to calculate electric vehicle cargo capacity. 

Cargo Capacity

Unlike an internal combustion vehicle which typically has a motor in the front of the car, electric cars are different. Electric vehicles do not have a large engine occupying the front of the car but instead have a frunk. A frunk, sometimes called a front trunk, is storage located under the front hood of electric vehicles. We measure storage capacity, and the volume the frunk and the rear trunk of each electric vehicle model can store.

Cargo Capacity with Seats Folded

The maximum storage capacity requires seats in the electric vehicle to be folded to hold larger objects typically. We look at storage capacity with seats folded to let you know how much a specific electric vehicle model can hold.

To determine which electric vehicles have the best storage capacity, we look at the storage capacity and storage capacity with seats folded to show you the best cargo carriers. We also take into account the rest of your criteria and budget to show you vehicle options that meet your needs.
